Methanosarcina Acetivorans

 

31 January 2014 — The PSU team of J. Greg Ferry and Co-P.I.s Costas Maranas and Thomas Wood (Chemical Engineering) plans to engineer a biocatalyst that will make use of methane as a co-reactant to generate chemical precursors of liquid fuels and other value added products. The effort will explore reversing a naturally occurring sequence of reactions that produces methane from acetate in Methanosarcina acetivorans. Congratulations, Dr. Ferry, Dr. Maranas and Dr. Wood on your award.
